  1. Well a problem with evoo is that its not always pure. Even organic ones. Many are actually mixed with another oil, such as canola because its cheaper. So if you decide to use evoo, you have to make sure its from a good company.

    As for the massage, I took a break the last two days to give my skin a break and I've been pretty busy. There's still a little improvement on my cheeks. The cheek I dermarolled and massaged has the most improvement still. Although, a tiny indented scar on my nose, and two little indented scars on my forehead are barely noticeable now. I really have to look for it to see them. Even with horrible lighting its hard to find. These scars didnt bug me before though, as they weren't that noticeable to begin with, but it seems that massaging is helping a bit. I'll keep massaging until the two week mark, and will prolly keep massaging afterwards but along with other methods like dermarolling and cupping.

    nomsomwaffles did your nose scar improve already? Was it indented before or raised? What did you do to cure it and how long did it take you to cure it? Hoping for your reply. Thank you and best wishes.

    Yes it did improve, it's not gone though. It's just very unoticeable. It was a tiny indented scar. It was also a newer scar (as well as the two little indented scars I had right above my eyebrow). These scars were from the end of my acne battle, I guess my acne wanted to make sure I had at least one scar on every part of my face, and not just the herd of scars it left on my cheeks lol. But thankfully these 3 scars are super tiny. They are only a couple months old, so thats probably why they were responding better to the massage. As the massage didnt do very much for my other scars (then again I only massaged for 2 weeks lol).

    My routine was:

    in the morning, I'd wash my face with warm water. Apply some msm liquid with vitamin c. Let it dry.

    Then proceed to massage with tallow balm for 15 mins

    In the evening, after my shower, I would apply some more msm with vitamin c. Let it dry.

    Then I would massage again with tallow balm but for 30 mins as I watch some tv.

    Sometimes I would add a couple drops of Young Living Frankincense oil.

    I always started and ended the massage by facial lymph draining (like this

    )

    I also have to add, I believe diet will have a lot to do with the effectiveness of massage and how one heals. I eat a very clean diet. No, I'm not vegan, but I eat organic/non-gmo/grassfed meats and fruits and veggies. I also eat plenty of liver, a lot of healthy fats, fermented foods, and bone broth (or when I'm too lazy to cook bone broth, I will add collagen to my food). I don't eat grains (at least not yet), and I just started adding dairy back into my diet.

    Best of luck to you~

    Wow. You are the first person I have heard whose nose scar responded well with massage. I too have a very clean diet. Which makes me lean. I am tall and I cant afford to go leaner. Anyway, how do you massage your nose? It seems like, spongy? I also cant explain. It is hard to massage the nose.

  2. Hey everyone. So, I had my TCA cross appointment scheduled in June with Dr. Dobry in San Diego. However, after consulting with her, she advised me to wait until summer is over due to my darker skin tone. I was a little disappointed knowing that I have to wait another 4 months to deal with this sucker. Mainly because I wanted to have this procedure done when I have more off time in the summer. Not to mention, I also got a freakin traffic ticket on the way back! (No front license plate on an interstate highway... WTF?) But she explained why I needed to wait and I trust she's looking out for my best interest otherwise she would have done the procedure that day. She also told me the nose is a little trickier but has definitely seen improvements and that the scar will look worse before it looks better. After walking out of her office, it gave me hope. My appointment scheduled for October. Will keep everyone updated.

    As for my scar, it looks as though it has maybe gotten slightly shallower but slightly wider. Not even noticeable, as it looks bad either way, lol.

    This is what it looks like today.

    ham and cheese, i feel like you're very lucky to have that nose scar in that location because then u could jus totally pierce over it. I'd take ur scar over mine any day lol.

    No way, man! I would take your scar waaaaay over mine! I don't even see why you're trippin on that scar, it's hardly noticeable... And I think piercing over the scar would just create more scar tissue.

    your scar doesnt even look bad. Like what others said, id gladly trade my scar scar over yours anytime. :P

    Hello! This is very uplifting, as I know many people are afflicted by this issue. I wanted to ask a specific question: for scarred pores and enlarged pores on the nose area specifically, how would you recommend massaging? I tried vigorous up-down and back-forth massaging on the surface of my nose with the middle finger using firm pressure as you do, but the skin seems too... I don't know the right word, spongy? Pliable? I just can't seem to get enough traction, and the skin doesn't really end up getting massaged much. Is there some special way for your nose? Please help, as I have quite a few, I suppose I would say boxcar, scars on my nose. Thank you.

    hi road to nowhere. Sorry to say but I gave up massaging the nose. At first it seemed to work but it comes back to its original depth after sometime. I am working now on cleansing and flushing. I am on my third week. I saw improvements on my skin complexion and moles, acne, oily skin and superficial scarring. But i still see no diiference on my deep scars. But I am impressed with the results. Here is the link, you could try this. The OP says it worked after 2 months of cleansing and flushing. :)

  5. My red marks are fading since i dont wear make up ( I believe this was 50% of the cure) and eat 100% good all of the time.

    I still have some breakouts and they leave red marks but because everything else is fading, they dont stand out that much. I am battling the last flow of inflammation. I hope at least

    Deep scarring... I dont have THAT MUCH deep scars, they are visible just when you look very close. Or when I lose too much weight. Since I started applying black seed oil on my skin, I see improvement. I saw improvement after the first day of using it.

    Maybe I will make some peeling in the winter, but this ist a priority now, I want to achieve 100% calm face, because I havent cured my ridiculous intolerances yet.

    oh do you have any idea whether that kind of diet would actually heal deep scarrinG? And oh have you read the post of ozone bubble regarding her diet and cleanses/flushes? She cured her scars. Deep scarring, keloids, superficial, etc. :)

  6. I ate 400-1000 calories a day of vegs and chicken and fish, no fat ever. Around 8 weeks with weekly carb loading (fruits, soy yoghurt with oats). BUT I also did 2 hours of low impact cardio a day minimum most days. I achieved a killer body and did this to improve my looks a bit, although I am skinny, 5 ft 8, 128-130 Pounds now. BUTTTTT I literally looked like hell in the face. I didnt believe nutrition can make this difference.

    Now I eat around 1600-2500 depending what I do/dont. I have a better body, because I am firmer and leaner abs, because I am not always bloated of the exess proteins. Big nutritious smoothie with loads of fat in the morning, fish, organic meat or eggs or sweet potatoes with fat anf rainbow salad in the evening. My scars are fading almost 100%, but this time not only is my face clear, my skin glows. Highly recommend black seed oil.

    Water fasting may be good for some, but for me every kind of fasting is depleting the organism of nutritions. I literally started to "glow" after I calculated the needed amount of food to meet 100% vitamin E from food, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Vitamin A, Bs, SELEN, Copper Etc. The menus I made for myself are calculated to be my medicine. I only supplement vitamin D and a skin-vitamin complex of different things such as medicine yeast, some Bs, Zinc Biotin etc.

    It is hard, but it is worth it.

    fire nature you mentioned in your previous post that you are almost 100% clear. Do you mean red marks or even deep facial scarring as well? And what about a deep nose scar? thank you

  7. well damn >~<
    how much did u lost after fast?
    nd how much did u gain back in how many days?
    do u think its water weight or u actually gained fat?
    what did u eat those days? (nd calories approx?)
    didnt u do the gradual back to eating thing?

    i lost a total of 2kg for 4 days and I believe its water fat that I lost. I gained back my weight very soon after 3 days of eating and I am actually happy about that because I am really skinny. I broke the fast with cucumber juice and a very little slice of banana. I did that for 2 days and on the 3rd day I ate a very small fish meat. By now I am back to my normal eating. I eat high protein foods because I want to fast again after a week or two. One more thing I noticed, i guess my nose scar was back to its depth. The scarred pore also returned back. Not so familiar if it is of the same size before but it is deeper and larger compared to what it looked like after my fast and 2 days of cucumber juice and banana. So I am planning to do a longer fast. :-) You might want to go along with me at the same time. :)

    yea this is so weird, ppl just allways run away, no evidence whatsoever...

    if ill ever fast ill post all the pics with all the problems.

    my main probs are scared pores, redmarks and 1 scar (but im not sure by now if it didnt apeared there from the beginning like a part of a face tbh ~_~ so yea not much scars here but pretty bad texture anyway)

    just answer my questions someone, i might do this..

    also improtant: what happens to face fat/volum/plumness?? colagen, elasticity, subcutaneous fat?? do u loose those or actually improve or what??

    answerrrr soonerr plss

    Shiki i am planning to fast again after a week or two. PM me if you want to fast with me at the same time. :)

  8. There might be no difference in the picture since it is not yet fully healed. There is also a white head that popped out from the scar so it is what probably what made my scar less noticeable. Like what i have mentioned in my own thread, I only fasted for 4 days. We have to fast for 2 weeks or more for the scar to heal. And prior to my fasting, i lived a healthy life style. I was a part time raw foodist and vegan, which probably contributed to my fast healing. My scar did not completely fill up. My skin is still glowig up to now, because I still eat healthy. It could also be one reason why yhe scar is less noticeable. I plan to do a longer fast when I'm done with my training in my new job. I am not FORCING you guys to do this. I have done lots of research with regards to water fasting, thats why I myself performed the fast. Please if you are new with the topic, do not try water fast. I am physically and mentally ready when I did this. :)

  9. This is not panos. Guys I am not encouraging anyone to do fasting unless you did tons of research. I am doing this because I myself want to heal, and not to put others in danger. We are all in this site to cure acne amd scarring. I want to help. And I am not forcing you to do this. We all have our own free will.

  10. Broke the fast. My vacation has ended, my employer just called amd said that i need to report to sign the contract for the job I applied for. The job is not that physical, but it would be my first time so I might be stressed and not so good things might happen. Broke the fast with a little ccumber juice. And a little slice of banana. :) will be fasting again soon, probably after 3 weeks. Will keep you updated guys. Have a nice week end! :)

  11. Maybe because I was living on a healhty lifestyle before I started the fast. What is even more amazing is that I did ot lose a lot of weight! My scarred pores on my cheeks is healing very quick. Or its probably the glow that makes it look good. My veins on my hands before were prominent, now it is starting to flat out! My nose scar is still he same though. Still hoping to see sone improvements. I get pimples at times but very occassional. Since i started the fast i did not develop any. :)

    That sounds great especially the fact that you heal quickly, surely a good sign!! How are you passing time by the way? Are u bored haha, i think that would be the worst thing!!

    Nobody can tell u how safe it would be, but fasting in general is nowhere near as dangerous as its made out to be so decide for yourself!! Have u active acne still by the way or is it just scars you have?

    Oh and one more thing my red marks on my face faded a lot. That was just four days of fast. From a distance you wont notice them anymore, what I could also see is an acne free skin. :)

  12. 1 hour to go before day 4. I noticed my skin looked brighter and glowing! My legs were in pain last night but i feel better now. I also noticed my lips chapped. Aside from that there are very small white heads popping out of my face, below my lower lip. :)

  13. Yes there is already a difference on my skin! It seems hydrated, soft amd glowing! And I am just aboit to enter day 4! I just noticed my skin allergy came back at my right hand, but it heals very quick. I think i might do a 10 day fast. Would that still be safe for a first time faster? Regarding my scars, I still see no improvement but i noticed that my scarred pores on my cheeks are hardly, very hardly noticeable. Unless you look at them very close, you cant tell i had those scarred pores.

    Aghne i just measured my weigt and I cant believe i only lost 2kgs! Could that be because I have healthy fats? smile.png Still on day 3. About to enter day 4 after seven hours. smile.png aghne when are you gonna fast?

    Hey Lenar, don't worry everyone loses water weight on a fast. You lose the most weight at the beginning and then it slows down. But to be honest, you asked me if 5 days will help and i don't think it will at all. Sorry but i think for most people 14 days minimum to help they're scars. I dunno though, i'm no expert, i've never even done a water fast but I don't want you to think you're gonna see a big change in the first week. You might not see any change til day 20 or so. What do u think? How long do u think u will try for?

    By the way, if you are updating here, can you also tell about the rest of your skin and not just your scars.. I mean if it starts to look smoother or healthier on your fast. I've heard that for some people, a few days fasting improves the overall look of their skin but i dunno. Just curious!

  14. 3rd day of fast here! I feel a little bit of light headed. I just thought of breaking the fast but I have to heal. I felt better compared to tthe first day of water fasting. I think i am already in the ketosis period. My tongue is white already. It keeps coming back to white color even if it is finished brushing. Probably because if the detoxing effect. :)
